PPM82 - Integrate or Die

Friday, October 13
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Room: Ryman Studio HI

Format: Presentation
Level: Intermediate
CPE: 1
Version: Any

Dynamics NAV is a fantastic ERP solution, but it was never designed to fulfill every need of every business. In high-functioning organizations, integration between different business management systems is essential and the ERP becomes the backbone of operations. This session will cover a deep discussion on 1) Why you should integrate business systems; 2) Why you are at a competitive disadvantage if you do not integrate; 3) Why 'data' makes integration hard and pitfalls to watch out for; and, 4) Options on how to build integrations. You will leave with a integration success plan.

Learning Objectives:

Chris Dew

Director of Product Management
eOne Solutions

Straight from the mean streets of Horace, ND, USA - Chris is a Data Integration Architect specializing in CRM, ERP and REST of the world integrations. As a connoisseur of integration over the last 20+ years, there is no data that Chris can't "have his way with". When he isn't busy driving forward SmartConnect to make integration easier you can probably find him hanging out with his family or building Blue Man Group instruments. What ever you do, don’t ask him about frisbee (disc) golf.

Chris Hanson

Partner Solutions Manager
eOne Solutions

I have been part of the eOne team for the last 8+ years, and became a part of the user group communities soon after joining the team. Within eOne, I worked through support, development, consulting and sales teams before ending up in a partner and solution focused role. I focus mainly on positioning and designing integration solutions that solve client needs - mainly using our integration platform SmartConnect.

Outside of work, I enjoy a variety of activities with my wife and 2 kids. Hiking, biking, road trips, and just basic trips to the park take up most of my free time. I also love to golf, although I don't get out as often as I'd like. I am a huge football fan - SKOL Vikings! And have way too many fantasy football teams.

I look forward to meeting everyone at Summit this year and hanging out in downtown Nashville. I'll be presenting a couple sessions this year and spending a lot of time in the NAV track, otherwise I'll be at the eOne Solutions booth during the event.
